The REEdI (Rethinking Engineering Education in Ireland) BEng (Honours) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering brings in the best of manufacturing and mechanical engineering, creating flexible and adaptable engineers to meet industry needs.
For admission to a programme, standard applicants must
score the necessary CAO points and
meet the minimum entry requirements
Leaving Certificate in six subjects i.e. H5 in two subjects and O6/H7 in four other subjects. The six subjects must include Mathematics and either English or Irish grade O6/H7.
NOTE: Applications will be assessed based on a combination of Leaving Certificate points and points awarded a portfolio. The portfolio is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their suitability for engaging in a dynamic, creative and engaging REEdI Engineering Programme.
The REEdI (Rethinking Engineering Education in Ireland) BEng (Honours) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering is a blended degree that brings in the best of manufacturing and mechanical engineering, culminating in flexible and adaptable engineers to meet industry needs. The REEdI student engineer will learn about the design and development of processes whilst also gaining an equally strong knowledge of the design, development and operation of products and equipment.
Students will learn “just-in-time” not “just-in-case”. The course will be delivered using cutting edge technologies such as augmented and virtual reality. In addition, students get to learn from top lecturers in the field, study and work with emerging technologies, work with world-class companies, learning using a blended approach, through classroom-based, as well as hands-on experience. The goal of the REEdI programme is to turn curious, creative, innovative and adaptable people into the engineers of the future.

Production Engineering: product and process lifecycle, production cell design, work measurement, production performance, production control
Graduates of this programme will be able to:
Demonstrate technical, soft skill and transversal skill competencies work effectively and professionally as an individual or within multidisciplinary teams
Apply acquired skills and knowledge required to solve problems and collaborate with subject matter experts (SMEs)
Research and develop potential solutions to problems
Interpret engineering drawings, SI units, specifications, engineering standards, regulatory requirements
Demonstrate implementation of principles and application of the concepts involved in operational excellence and lean 6-sigma
Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of digital / immersive technology and identify opportunities to utilise these effectively in industry
Recognise good leadership attributes and look for continuous professional development (CPD) opportunities to develop these
Demonstrate awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the importance of the engineer’s role in society
Formal work placement (2 years) is an integral element of the course and takes place in years three and four. MTU will secure work placement for students, working with industry partners to ensure specific projects are ready for students to prepare for prior to going on placement which they will then work on whilst on placement.
A module is a standalone unit of learning and assessment and is completed within one semester. A full-time student will normally study six modules in each semester; part-time and ACCS (Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Subjects) students will have flexibility as to the number of modules taken.

REEdI is a ground-breaking approach to engineering education in Ireland, funded through the Higher Education Authorities (HEA) Human Capital Initiative (HCI) Pillar 3. Student engineers that graduate with a REEdI Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering will be perfectly placed to become Engineers of the future for Irelands Manufacturing sector.
Ireland has a shortage of Engineering Graduates with the skills that the manufacturing sector requires. REEdI are addressing this by co-designing the REEdI Engineering Curricula with our industry partners and embedding world class models of teaching and assessment throughout the curriculum.
The project is co-ordinated across two higher education institutes in Ireland: MTU, and UL. Charles Sturt University in Australia and Harper Adams University in the UK bring an international dimension to the project.
Engineers can create fantastic new technological advancements that can improve the way we live. Engineers design & develop materials, processes & systems in a sustainable way. The work Engineers do ensure products such as medical devices and pharmaceuticals are produced safely and efficiently to enhance, prolong and save people’s lives. Being an engineer gives you the opportunity to make a huge difference to individuals, to society and to the world.
You will have 2 years’ work experience in world class companies, so you can earn as you learn. Future proof your employment opportunities and increase your market value by having valuable work experience prior to even graduating! You will also get to learn in teams, on projects and by using immersive technologies (Virtual and Augmented Reality) compared to a traditional engineering degree where you learn mainly in the classroom and in laboratories.
